A less than Grand Hotel
17 June 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

A year after MGM released Grand Hotel and got a Best Picture Oscar for it Paramount decided to do a cut down version of the classic. From Hell To Heaven doesn't any marquee names with the exception of Carole Lombard and Jack Oakie. But the structure is the same, a group disparate stories about people gathered at a resort hotel spa that sounds like Saratoga.

The big Capitol Handicap is being run and all there intend to bet and they have a lot of hopes and dreams. Lombard runs into her ex-husband Sidney Blackmer. The current husband left her high and dry and Blackmer who is a bookie offers her a proposition bet that she takes. Won't reveal what it is.

Jack Oakie is his usual obnoxious self as the track announcer who wants to break into show business the way Lucy Ricardo wants to. He's the comic relief in this film.

From Hell To Heaven will never be a Carole Lombard top ten. But it's a competently made drama with a cast perfect in their parts.
